Adrien Brody


Adrien Brody: Biography

Born on April 14, 1973, in New York City, Brody was raised in Queens. The son of a schoolteacher and a celebrated photojournalist, he was drawn to acting from an early age. Brody's first taste of show business came when he was 12-years-old and performed as a magician at children's parties; with his mother's encouragement, he subsequently enrolled in acting classes, attending both the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the High School for the Performing Arts. He found his earliest work in off-Broadway productions, and made his television debut in 1998 with a PBS movie and a turn as Mary Tyler Moore's son in the comedienne's ill-fated sitcom Annie McGuire.

Adrien Brody: Career

Early in his career, Brody appeared in lesser-seen films that earned him critical praise but failed to put him in the public spotlight, such as Steven Soderbergh's 1993 drama King of the Hill, 1994's Angels in the Outfield and 1997's The Last Time I Committed Suicide. Despite a strong performance in Terrence Malickís The Thin Red Line in 1988, many of Brodyís scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. Brody showed promise once again in 1999 as punk rocker Ritchie in Spike Lee's Summer of Sam, but didnít receive true stardom until three years later when Roman Polanski cast him in The Pianist (2002). Starring as a celebrated Jewish pianist in Nazi-occupied Warsaw, Brody drew on the heritage (and rare dialect) of his Polish grandmother for the part, earning a Best Actor Oscar for his performance. At age 29, Brody was the youngest Academy Award winner for Best Actor. Upcoming projects include co-starring in M. Night Shyamalan's thriller The Woods.
